Sanitize Your Disinfection Process

Protect Patients and Staff from Surface Bacteria

Did you know that your laundered cleaning cloths and towels could be helping bacteria thrive on your hospital's surfaces? According to The American Journal of Infection Control's recent study, live bacteria remains on cloths and towels a majority of the time, putting patients at risk of contracting an HAI (healthcare-associated infection).

This fact is significant because 1 out of every 20 patients contracts an HAI each year. In fact, HAIs are 1 of the top 10 leading causes of death nationwide.

The Study's Findings

  • 93% of Sampled Towels Contained Live Bacteria
    • E. Coli, Coliforms Linked to Feces, and Pneumonia-Associated Bacteria
  • 67% of Tested Soak Buckets Harbored Bacteria
  • Cotton Towels Reduced Disinfectant Strength by up to 85%
